From Horse Cave, Kentucky, Ned Hill (singer, frontman, and main songwriter) seems to be possessed by the spirit of the music as he flails his lanky 6'3 frame about the stage. Only a few years back, Ned was a teacher for the handicapped when his raucous punk-pop band The Blue Cha Cha's sparked major label interest with their modestly produced self-titled release. After his solo effort garnered greater label interest, Ned decided to leave the nest to follow the dream.
From Mt. Washington, Kentucky, Jeff Davis has been playing in original bands since the mid-eighties. Jeff found his true calling as a songwriter in the early 90's with his song "Diane" which was recorded by Polygram recording artists The Kentucky Headhunters on their second release "Electric Barnyard". Jeff's bass style has a roots rock flavor and melodic sensibility. Also, his backup vocals add a soulful complement to the twangy timbre` of Ned: a vocal blend that embodies the rural heritage from which they come. With such a connection to their roots and similarities in songwriting, Ned and Jeff, long-time acquaintances, decided to bring their talents together. And The Cowards were born
With such a talented group of songwriters and performers, it is no wonder why The Cowards, just over a year old, are drawing larger audiences with every performance. Their live shows are well-rehearsed without appearing staged. It's obvious these guys are in it just for the fun -- and their audience can't help but feel the same. So, in a time when anything goes, go see The Cowards. With a name like that, what do you have to be scared of.
